About This Book
Touched by Fire; Renewal of a Landscape and a Community, As part of the 10th anniversary after the Cerro Grande fire, the author interviewed various community members about their journey of recovery. After the fire people shared their experiences with family, friends, and even strangers. Many did not see their stories as important, yet the stories were told: stories of evacuation, stories of loss, stories of compassion, and stories of miracles. Experts say it takes eighteen months to three years for people to recover from a life-changing event. I wanted to understand where we were as a community ten years after the fire. Elie Wiesel wrote, “Whoever survives a test, whatever it may be, must tell the story.”
